Bride-to-be mocked after revealing her boyfriend proposed by sticking the ring in a McDonald’s Big Mac

WEDDING proposals are almost as important as the day itself with people pulling out all the stops when getting down on one knee.

Most women dream of a huge sparkler complete with a perfect manicure, but one bride-to-be may have needed to clean grease off her ring after her boyfriend stuck it inside a burger.

A photo of a burger bun with an engagement ring stuck in it was shared to Facebook group, Optimistic or Pessimistic, where it's been liked more than 18,000 times.

And it's racked up more than 10,000 comments after going viral online, with people unable to contain their horror at the proposal.

People have branded it the worst way to ask someone to marry you, calling it a “McNightmare”.

One person said: “This was someone’s McDream.

People have been making all kinds of burger-related jokes

“Sorry I couldn’t resist.”

Another person commented: “Big Mac? Big No!”

A Third wrote: “I swear to god if they didn’t ask ‘will you McMarry me?'”

This person asked: “Can she have the burger if the answer is no?”

Someone else posted: “Burger ring… delicious.”

Someone else jumped on burger bandwagon with this flattering proposal

Another person wrote: “Um. That better not be a Big Mac. Five Guys or nothing.”

And taking some inspiration, this person asked: “Will you be my McWife.”

Other people suggested replaced an onion ring with an engagement ring, while some claimed they would have preferred their ring in a chicken nugget.

Meanwhile this mother-of-the-groom was slammed for wearing a £3k bespoke wedding dress for her son’s big day.

Plus this guest’s £165 silky blue gown was branded ‘cheap lingerie’.

And this cougar bride desperately tried to please her toyboy fiance who demanded a white wedding with all the trimmings.
